This film, dedicated to the dental health of the people of America, tells the story of an average American family, the mistakes they made, their dental habits, good and bad. Out of the experiences of this average family come the lessons that lead to good dental health: the need for preventive dentistry and early dental care, the need for regular checkups and early treatment of decayed teeth, and the desirability of proper nutrition and careful mouth hygiene. Narrated by Lowell Thomas.
